The Astros made us sweat by they won game seven at home to make it to the World Series. Now thing reset and even though they are the underdog I am not sure the gap between the two teams is all that big.
In the four wins over the Yankees the Astros gave up just 3 runs.
They have been getting great starting pitching and Dallas Keuchel has been sharp more often than not.
Jose Altuve has been a big bat for Houston in the playoffs. He is batting .400 and nobody has more homers. I am not sure the power can continue but he can still be a disruptor for Houston.
They need him.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles had a much easier time dispatching the Cubs than Houston did New York. They have been chilled out at home and ready to go for a while.
The Dodgers lineup is interesting.
Justin Turner has continued his hot season and Yasiel Puig has been amazing. Enrique Hernandez is far from their core but he single handedly won the clincher at Chicago. That is what the playoffs are all about.
There was no doubt who the Dodgers would give the ball to in game one. Clayton Kershaw gets maligned but he has been good in the playoffs this season.
Sure the ERA is a little high (for him) but hitters are batting just .194.

Free Houston Astros vs. Clayton Kershaw MLB Prediction:
Keuchel is good but it is too bad we are not getting Kershaw vs Justin Verlander. I wonder what the line would have been with that mound matchup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston +155
At the current price there is little value to backing L.A. Houston might be a little sharper for having played more recently. If you want to back L.A. I would suggest the runline.
